I have tried this same thing on multiple PCs and in every case, it does not work. Why? Because to see the keyboard the USB drivers must be loaded and that does not happen until the Windows boot phase. The only PCs that can be booted with external keyboard or mouse require a PX/2 connection, not USB, because that is apparently live all the time.
